In the reviewer’s opinion, Factory Girls are heroes and representatives of all disadvantaged girls and women everywhere in the world. Migration changes their fate, frees them from their suffering, loneliness, isolation, stereotypes, and conservatism. They come to the city to enrich their lives, enjoy freedom, and better themselves. Despite their low socioeconomic status, many work hard and do not take advantage of other people. They live with pride, self-respect, and dignity. Factory Girl is forever inspiring and the best book that I have ever read; that resonates with the defiant and determined voices of the girls making it stand out: "In all the time I knew them," Chang writes, "the migrant girls never asked me for help and rarely even for advice. Life was something they faced alone, as they had been telling me from the first day we met. Saying 'I can only rely on myself'”.
